David Moss’s work as a Taproot pro bono consultant started in 2012, and since then, he’s worked on four Taproot projects as a photographer. But his commitment to giving back started well before that. In fact, that ethic for giving back has made a huge impact on David and his wife’s life together.

“When we were in our late twenties, my wife and I were looking for work that was more meaningful than our 9-to-5 jobs in New York City. We did something crazy – quit our jobs and spent a year working as volunteers with a non-profit refugee resettlement organization in Georgia.”

And that was just the start. After Georgia, David and his wife spent time working in a Vietnamese refugee camp in Thailand and 18 months in Zaire with Habitat for Humanity.

“Those experiences changed the trajectory of our lives,” said David.

Now living in DC, David continues to find ways to give back, and fortunately for Taproot, he’s joined our community of consultants. Using his photography skills, he’s made an impact on local nonprofits, contributing to some visually stunning annual reports and websites.
